Hello m'fellow Trustinvoguers and newbies! I hope you're all doing well. I know I am, it's finaaaally Sunday! Yay! I work all weekend, so it technically a Sunday feels like a Friday to me. I know, kinda weird. But yeah! Today's post is going to be on my latest fashion obsession/craze which is the Kimono. From Topshop to River Island they're present pretty much EVERYWHERE at the minute, and I expect them to be quite popular still come September time. I'ts seen as an 'East meets West' fusion. I bought my first ever Kimono from River Island (where I work) and did an OOTD last month, which you can see by clicking here.
I must say, although it is brilliant working for a fashionable store like River Island, it can be pretty daunting on your bank account come pay day! Being surrounded by so many pretty clothes, shoes, handbags and jewellery can drive you to spend unbelievable amounts of money. Lucky for discount! But still, it all adds up. Anyway, without jibbing' on too much, this will be a sort of 'Kimono Wishlist' that I want to add to my wardrobe before the Summer is up! Hopefully some anyway! Enjoy..
Lace Fringe Kimono in Cream - Topshop // £38
Black Leopard Print Devore Kimono - River Island // £50
Black Floral Fringed Long Line Kimono - River Island // £40
As you can clearly see, Kimono's are rather expensive but so so beautiful and wearable! In my opinion? If it's totally worth it (which it is) then time to splash the cash! I love these three from Topshop and River Island in particular, because they're so different. The pretty lace, the statement floral print and sultry leopard print is a fantastic mix! Not only that, they're adaptable. You can literally go from wearing it with jeans and a top throughout the day, to putting it with a dress during the night. That's, in my opinion, is what's so great about them.
What do you think to these Kimonos & the Kimono trend in general?
As always, let me know!
Lots of love, Hannah xoxo
